    I used a pound of asparagus, made in a 9x9 pan. I made all the sauce, but used about 3/4 of it. I also made this a day ahead of time up to the point where I had to whip the cream and put it in the oven. It was all good, but (and this is my fault) it was greasy due to the overwhelming amount of cheese. I would use low fat shredded mozzerella next time and cut the quantity down to 1 cup.

    Very nice. I wasn’t sure if the sauce was too thin. It ended up working. I used less noodles because I had a smaller casserole. Baked well. I would add more asparagus and more salt.

    I roasted the asparagus as instructed, but when they came out of oven they were tough as wood fibre. I don't know what I did wrong but I am disappointed. The end product tasted okay but the asparagus remained "Woody" tough. Would not dare serve to friends.??
